Measured by its ability to bind immobilized recombinant human Neuropilin-1 in an ELISA.
Activity assay SDS-PAGE The optimal working dilution should be determined by the end user.
Lyophilized from sterile solution with no additives
Store at -20°C. Reconstitute in water to a concentration of 0.1-1.0 mg/mL. Do not vortex. For extended storage, to further dilute in buffer containing carrier protein (e.g. 0.1% BSA) and store in aliquots at -20°C to -80°C is recommended.
The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the platelet-derived growth factor/vascular endothelial growth factor (PDGF/VEGF) family and is active in angiogenesis, lymphangiogenesis, and endothelial cell growth. This secreted protein undergoes a complex proteolytic maturation, generating multiple processed forms which bind and activate VEGFR-2 and VEGFR-3 receptors. This protein is structurally and functionally similar to vascular endothelial growth factor C. [provided by RefSeq
